New Sci-Fi Series Headed to BBC America

With SyFy’s Defiance coming down the pipe, BBC America is beefing up it’s Supernatural Saturday lineup with a new scripted sci-fi series developed in conjunction with SPACE and Temple Street Productions.

Developed by Flashpoint‘s Graeme Manson and Spartacus’ John Fawcett, Orphan Black “will take viewers through the mysterious life of a street-wise chameleon, who makes the shocking discovery that she is a clone.”

From the press release:

The latest production to join the popular block of Supernatural Saturday titles – Doctor Who and the original Being Human – Orphan Black follows outsider, orphan and street-wise chameleon Sarah.  After witnessing a woman’s suicide, Sarah assumes the strangers identity – who happens to look just like her. Expecting to solve all her problems by cleaning out the dead woman’s savings, Sarah is instead thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery as she realizes the dizzying truth – she and the dead woman are clones.  As Sarah searches for answers, she discovers the chilling fact that there are more people like her out there – genetically identical individuals who were planted in unsuspecting birth parents and nurtured in completely different circumstances. With no idea who created the clones, she’ll need to discover the reason in a hurry as an assassin is killing them one by one.

Production on Orphan Black begins this fall in Toronto. No actors have been announced for the project and a premiere date has not been set.
